Apply now: Bauhaus Lab 2015 and IKEA Bauhaus Summer 2015
Young people come to Bauhaus: Bauhaus Dessau Foundation again hosts two interesting educational programs in 2015. From 4th May to 9th August, Bauhaus Lab 2015 „Cracks in the Curtain Wall – Beyond an Architecture of Cleanliness“ is focussing on the new material culture of modern architecture, regarding one rather neglected aspect: cleaning. Young professionals in architecture, design, fine arts and curatorial practice may apply until 31st March. Current design ideas for living and working in the Masters’ Houses are sought at this year’s IKEA Bauhaus Summer „Newly Furnished“ (3rd August – 31st October). During a three-month designer residency and a three-week summer workshop, minimal interventions for Masters’ house Muche/Schlemmer will be developed. Young teams of two to four graduates or young professionals from the fields of interior design, art, design and architecture are invited to apply until 12th April.
The way for the competition process in Dessau is cleared
The Foundation Board of the Bauhaus Dessau Foundation has once again confirmed at today's special meeting the intention to erect the new building of the Bauhaus Museum at City Park. Furthermore, the Foundation Board decided about the exhibition and communication concept for the Bauhaus Museum as a basis for further proceedings. In addition, the committee agreed on the further competition process and instructed the Director to apply, by secured total funding, for an open two-phase competition of the new building project. The Foundation Board recommended nine professionals for the Advisory Board of the Bauhaus Dessau Foundation (among others Ute Eskildsen - Professor of Photography in Essen, Daniel Hug - Director of the Art Cologne, and Prof. Dr. Martino Stierli - Chief Curator of Architecture and Design at MoMA in New York).
“Bürgerinfo Bauhaus” website goes online for the people of Weimar
Weimar gains a new Bauhaus Museum. For the people of Weimar, the realisation of such a building project raises many questions and reservations. The website "Bürgerinfo Bauhaus", designed specifically to address these issues and in association with the building project, is therefore now live online. It supplies information relating to the building project and is also designed as a platform for exchange so that people of Weimar can contact those in charge and air their views in public. A Facebook page will also be published.
On thursday 31st July, 2014 at 5 pm a roundtable discussion will take place at the Masters' House Muche/Schlemmer. Michael Erlhoff (Cologne), Stefan Schridde (Berlin) and Julia Amberger discuss the topics “using rather than owning” / “new trends in shareconomy and design” / “plannend obsolescence”. In English.
